The Property Market in Essex for Equity Release

Essex is a major commuter belt area of the UK with a high proportion of its residents working in London.  When you move away from the more popular areas of Basildon and Romford you encounter smaller market towns such as Coggeshall or Epping which are perfect locations for retirees.  Alot of the main towns in Essex are on the central line which makes them highly valued which indicates a higher amount of equity that could be released from the home.

Overall the value of property is much higher than the national average at £420,000.  The greater proportion of properties in Essex are three bedroomed semi-detached with a value of £200-£300,000.  The amount of £1million plus properties is above the national average, thus contributing to the high average property price.

What Our Essex Equity Release Customers Say....

Having been in the finance industry until I retired some years ago, I have high standards!! Rob met every one of them. From our first meeting he was pleasant and professional taking me through every step confidently. Once he had submitted my application he was with me every step of the way. I was amazed at how quick and easy it was from start to finish.

Mr S, Essex 18/3/24

Shaun was brilliant from day one and all the way through the process . Alway replied to my calls and emails with answers to questions and kept an eye on change of interest rates as they would come down he would reduce my rate accordingly . He is knowledgeable, reliable and listens to your needs and offers the best service possible .

Mrs P, Essex 11/3/24

Rob, has helped me by jumping through hoops to get me the outcome I wanted. He supported me right from the start, in a realistic and kind way. He was always there for me throughout the process, and I felt ( in fact I am sure) that he genuinely cared about my situation. I went into this process very disheartened, and almost 100% sure that once again, something would go wrong. But this time, thanks to Rob, it worked out for me, and my home has been saved.

Mrs R, Essex, 12/11/23

Shaun was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He was able to fully understand my financial situation and found me the best Equity Release for my needs. The whole process was quick and easy. Questions were welcomed and dealt with. He was a great support.

Mrs S, Essex, 19.6.23

Great advice, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Turn around time from initial meeting to mortgage offer was excellent. Follow up/progress regularly received.

Mrs S 19/5/23, Essex

Our interest only mortgage was ending in March 2023 and because of having an endowment related mortgage to pay off the outstanding balance which did not fulfill the amount owed we had to look for alternative options. Shaun​ discussed and supported us through the whole process. He answered all our questions. He is very knowledgeable, patient and efficient. He made the whole journey a lot easier and gave us peace of mind.

Private, 17/10/22, Essex

Shaun helped me to fully understand what is involved in taking out a lifetime mortgage, all associated costs, our options and any potential risks. Shaun was helpful, he listened to our needs and requirements. He was easy to communicate with and kept us updated throughout the process.
